Hey guys, been using the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo on my i5-2500k (set at stock settings because I tried overclocking, caused crashing a few times, then I got lazy and reverted),
so at stock settings, with a decent air cooler, should I really be seeing an average of 45C on each core on CoreTemp, RealTemp, HWMonitor etc?
I do stream a lot of 1080 videos, but surely my 6870 should take the brunt on that, not my cpu right?
I also play a lot of Minecraft, Diablo 3, Terraria, etc, and I can see why when playing the games it gets warm, but when I'm NOT?
Is it most likely I would have put too much thermal paste on, or messed up the install on the cooler?
That's definitely warm for stock with a 212 Evo. I'm at 4.5 @ 1.277V load voltage, and my temps are just slightly lower than that, actually (58-62C and ambient at 23C) with my 212 Evo. I have it set up in push/pull, but it doesn't make THAT much of a difference. Might want to do a re-mount.
